Timo Schmitz: “The Different Forms of Religion” (2017) [PDF]

During history, several forms of religion evolved. From animistic beliefs to shamanism to canonical religions. All these forms of religion are to be seen equal, though their evolutional stage shows that their has been a development from one stage to another. This paper shows a few characteristics on how to classify them and shows examples.

My Archive Of Languages (E-Book)

cover

When I was very young, I started to collect phrases and words in many different languges and within the years I created a big archive. In this book, I want to open the archive to the public. The work consists of the so called ‘manuscripts’ which are the collected files, and an appendix with ‘Notes’. These notes contain useful information about the languages, grammatical features, explanations to the phrases, etc., making it a general reference work. It is intended for polyglots who want to get a glimpse in different languages through a few examples and want to understand the relations of the languages through these examples. In addition, this book contains a new orthography proposal for Lingao language, which does not a broadly written standard yet. In addition, there is a small introduction on Serbo-Croatian and a Luxembourgish course with 12 lessons, since Luxembourgish is my native language. The book is multilingual and the manuscripts are explained either in English, German, French, Chinese or Russian, so it is mandatory to know these languages, though this work might be useful for someone who is only fluent in English.

Timo Schmitz: “The radical Nihilism of Fumiko Kaneko” (2016) [PDF]

This is Part 25 of my philosophical series “Individualism between Moral and Virtues, Government and Religion”.

Fumiko Kaneko (1903-1926) was a Japanese political activist and philosopher. She developed a radical view on nihilism, based on her own experiences, as she was abandoned by her own family, had to struggle for education, and was mistreated by her relatives in Korea, where she got to see the misery that the Japanese colonial rule imposed on Korea. In 1922, she was introduced to Western philosophy by her closest friend, such as Max Stirner and Friedrich Nietzsche, but also Mikhail Artsybashev and Peter Kropotkin. Kaneko fought for gaining a career which was very restricted and almost impossible for women at that time, rebelling against the social conventions and her oppression. In 1926, Fumiko  Kaneko committed suicide in her prison cell.

Timo Schmitz: “The Advantages and Disadvantages of Juche Philosophy” (2016) [PDF]

This is Part 13 of my philosophical series “Individualism between Moral and Virtues, Government and Religion”.

 

As promised in Part 12, I want to compare the advantages and disadvantages of Juche philosophy, which is formally the state doctrine of the DPRK, and after that it is compared with my philosophy, the New Constructivist Communism (introduced in Part 8). Which things can we learn from Juche? Which things are not compatible with my philosophy? Which things went wrong in North Korea?

Timo Schmitz: “Philosophical Principle and Historical Context of the Juche Idea” (2015) [PDF]

In Part 12 of my series “Individualism between Moral and Virtues, Government and Religion”, I want to introduce the key concepts and the historical background of Juche Idea, the state doctrine of the DPRK. The article became that long that I decided to make two parts on it. While this part introduces the philosophy and its history, in the next part I want to do criticism and comparision on the basis of the terms of my philosophy.
